Even the best implants are not designed to last forever. Although you may be able to avoid the implants changing shape or leaking, eventually, they will become worn out. As a result, all implants must eventually be replaced. But, never fear! Cosmetic surgery has made amazing strides in the last decade, guaranteeing that replacing your implants will result unless time away from work, less recovery pain, and smaller scars.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SALINE AND SILICONE IMPLANTS?

Breast augmentation procedures are done by surgically inserting breast implants to help add shape and volume. The most common types of breast implants are silicone and saline implants. Their differences stem from the different materials used to fill the implant. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water, and silicone implants are filled with a life-like gel. Both types of implants have their advantages and disadvantages, but we generally recommend that our patients choose silicone implants. However, during your consultation, you will have an opportunity to discuss what type of implant is best for your breast augmentation surgery.

WHY CHOOSE SILICONE IMPLANTS?

Silicone breast implants are filled with silicone gel. The viscous gel gives the implants a much more natural feel than those just filled with water. Additionally, silicone implants avoid the visual rippling produced by saline implants. They’re also softer, lighter, and last longer than saline implants. Because of these reasons, more and more women are choosing silicone implants for their first procedure and replacements! The advantages over saline implants make silicone implants a great choice for women at all stages of their process.

WHY UPGRADE YOUR IMPLANTS?

Implants will not last forever, so now is a great time to upgrade your implants with a revision breast augmentation procedure. Our office offers an opportunity to correct subpar results like unwanted stretching and drifting. Additionally, you can receive new silicone implants to replace less advantageous saline implants. If you are unhappy with the shape of your breasts, your doctor can help tailor your new replacement to help better suit your needs. You may need a replacement procedure, which involves minimal recovery time and best of all, no new scars so you can be back in action as quickly as possible. In some cases, breast implant removal is recommended. If that’s the case, our office can also perform this surgery.

These operations are performed for many reasons, medical and personal, but all are performed with the goal of helping you achieve the body you’ve always wanted. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation and see how you can change your life with new and improved breasts. We proudly serve the Fort Lauderdale and Broward County communities.
